Disaster Response

MACHC Region

Per IHO Resolution 1/2/2005, a draft plan of disaster response has been prepared to have the MACHC to respond to disasters in accordance with the Reference. This will be done in two steps: a) Preparation phase; and b) Implementation phase following a disaster (see Draft MACHC Disaster Response Plan). National and Regional disaster management organizations in the MACHC region must have the capability to effectively respond to emergencies. A list of key documents related to emergency response can be accessed through the links on the left.
